then so can we, but funny thing I've noticed, occupiers don't seem to be present in this forum any longer (as indicated by the fact that virtually all of the "best comments of the day" are a bunch of little political campaign commercials), oh well >>>>

The hippies were more fun. Less anger and more love.

People get the wrong idea when they see film like Kent State, they think it was all anger and violence. Furthest from the truth.

If you walked by a protest, you were likely to be given a flower. Well, that was those days.

They were also more hip to influencing culture. You saw them all over in TV shows, advertising, the music business, and hollywood. OWS has shown that they don't like all that kind of stuff. OWS protested t-shirts, movies, and any manner that they considered exploitive of their movement. It's a different time

Hippies wanted to be left alone. So if they did accomplish anything, as they can take some righteous credit for civil rights support for example, it probably has to do with them not demanding other people's money as much as the ows crowd.

Hippies: live and let live OWS: work so that I can live

Conservotrolls >>> sheep that define things according to Fox News pseudo-gibberish. Stop being a slave, use your brain (assuming you have one).

well, seeing as how you brought all those new facts to bear and explained how they discredit my opinion on the subject, who can possibly argue?

I like how you really, really used your brain there. not like you just puked out a couple of meaningless phrases and didn't offer an opposing view backed by facts and logic.

the pride of ows is clearly you!

"If the hippies could do it"

Do what? Help America lose another war? Get more people hurt,perhaps killed? What exactly did Hippies do that was worthy of a post on this lame site?

Nice, from the conservotroll to the (either) completely idiotic or mentally unbalanced, who still think Vietnam was a good idea, or something that could be won. Wow :)

If I told you you would think it was BS. Try Google for a start.

Hey shadzworth. What did you shoot for dinner tonight?

[-] -2 points by shadzworth (-394) 5 years ago

Dunno,it had a lot of hair,smelled REAL bad,had some kind of multicolored covering and crawled back into a VW van to bleed out. Not sure but I thought I heard "I don't live today" coming from the van.
